You must be able to swim and have basic cycling skills.  You'll need a road bicycle & helmet. Also a good set of running shoes and swim goggles are compulsory. (We can fit you for both of those.)

About the course:

We will teach all things triathlon, including swim skills, cycling, run training and additional skills such as transitioning between events. 

Our goal is to help you have fun as you ease into a great level of fitness. We will have three group training sessions a week and you will be given a weekly training plan.

The group training sessions will look like this:

  • Tuesday evening: Open Water Swim w/ drills to improve form & confidence in water.
  • Wednesday 5:30am or 6:15pm: Speedwork at Walter Fuller Dog Park. 
  • Saturday Morning: Brick workout (alternating biking & running intervals w/ transition tips)

All of our instructors are triathletes and great at communicating. They want to see you do your best and help you to achieve your goals. 

Instructors include: Jimmy, Cody and a few guest clinicians.
